Fluendo announces the last release of its multimedia codec pack available on Open Solaris, the open OS by Sun Microsystems
BARCELONA, SPAIN January 30th, 2009
Fluendo S.A. today announced the latest release of its multimedia codec pack, the V7.
Fluendo is an established leading provider of multimedia codecs on the GNU/Linux Market. Fluendo has developed a set of audio and video decoders. Fluendo supports and contributes to the development of the GStreamer multimedia framework, which is emerging as the standard media framework on Linux platforms. This includes support for all main software platforms, as Open Solaris for example.
Several years have passed since Fluendo first started selling its codec pack on line, to help all Linux users enhance their multimedia experience with high quality decoders. Now with its last release, the V7, Fluendo offers the users a full set of codecs, and all users of Open Solaris are now able to enjoy them.
The new Fluendo codec pack V7 includes:
01. Windows Media Audio Decoder (Windows Media 7, 8, 9, 10, Pro, Lossless and Speech)
02. Windows Media Video Decoder (Windows Media 7, 8, 9 and VC1)
03. Windows Media ASF Demuxer
04. Windows Media MMS Networking
05. MPEG2 Video Decoder
06. MPEG4 Part 2 Video Decoder
07. DivX 3.11 Alpha Video Decoder
08. H.264/AVC Video Decoder
09. MPEG2 Program Stream and Transport Stream demuxer
10. MPEG4 ISO Demuxer
11. MP3 Audio Decoder
12. AAC Audio Decoder
13. LPCM Audio Decoder
The full pack is available on all main Linux distributions (RedHat, Ubuntu, Mandriva, Xandros, Solaris, Suze, Fedora) and for different hardware platforms, x86, 32 and 64 bits.
“We are really proud to be able to propose this new pack to users, which includes real evolution from the last one, like new codecs integrated (Divx3 and LPCM), HD TV playback enabled, H264 and AAC available for 64 bits architecture. Fluendo has always worked listening to the user's need, and the availability of our codecs on Open Solaris has always been one of the questions we had. Enabling our full codec pack on Open Solaris has been a challenge we are happy to have reached together with the Sun team,” said Julien Moutte, Fluendo co-founder and CEO. “Our objective is to keep on working to increase the list of our codecs and platforms supported, so feel free to connect to our brand new webshop at www.fluendo.com and give us your feedback”.
From February 16th to 19th, Sun Microsystems will be exhibiting at the Mobile World Congress (GSM) in Barcelona. Feel free to contact us and come to see us.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment

One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
